BUSINESS: The Independent Eye: Inspirations Welcoming the Colors of Fall By Staff Wednesday, September 8, 2021 8:20 AM NEW YORK—Over the weekend, many of us bid summer goodbye and welcomed the unofficial start of fall. We still have a few weeks until this year’s autumnal equinox on September 22, but things are changing nonetheless, as homes and stores across the Northern Hemisphere bring out their Halloween décor and autumnal collections. This week, we’re taking a look at some of the colors that we’ll likely be seeing everywhere this fall, from muted, earthy oranges and greens to brighter blues and yellows, all of them coming together to make a gorgeous autumnal palette. Let these colors inspire you for in-office frame displays, window setups, or even a little paint change.Pantone, the ultimate color authority, is predicting an autumnal color palette filled with earthy greens, blues, yellows and oranges.

This painting from Kristine A. Lombardi combines mustard and maroon to create a gorgeous autumn scene.
